While Randy ‘nanonoko’ Lew was studying Managerial Economics at UC Davis, he was also making a name for himself on the videogame scene. His title of choice was ‘Marvel vs Capcom 2’ and he played on the national circuit throughout college. There he encountered Team PokerStars Pro Hevad Khan and other players that were making the switch from video games to online poker. Randy opened a PokerStars account and found that his decision making skills and quick-fire reactions, honed playing fighting games, were well suited to high-volume multi-tabling. He made Supernova Elite in 2008 and 2009 by 24-tabling 6-Max No Limit Hold’em cash games, and hopes to take that mountain of experience to the tournament tables in the future. When he’s not playing poker he still plays fighting games at the highest level. Randy Lew is a member of Team PokerStars Online and plays with the User ID ‘nanonoko’. Learn more about Randy Lew
